The actual stage area is the former House of Commons and patrons will be paying between of $50 - $100 to see this amazing group.


The Canadian Improv Showcase is a professional touring improv troupe that specializes in comedy with a Canadian twist and they are very excited to be taking part in this amazing opportunity.


“It’s really a dream come true for us all” expressed the troupe’s leader Matthew R. Lawrence. “It’s what touring is all about: different audiences, different experiences and the opportunity to entertain as many people as possible.”
